Learning to Sew

I love sewing. I sew costumes, pillow covers, cushions, and whatever else can be made with a needle and thread. I have 3 sons. Do I teach them to sew? Ofcourse!!!!

The perfect opportunity presented itself when Caleb needed some help to make a prototype pencil case for his design project. This was his design.

He used:

1. Black fabric from my ever growing bag of cut up scrap fabric (from my sewing projects).

2. Long ribbon

3. Pins

4. Needle and thread

Here, he is learning to pin the fabric together and do a backstitch by hand.

He did the rest of the stitching with the sewing machine. Which he was more excited to use.

The finished product.

Boys can sew too 👍🏻
